    Some great people

    Company is run to make executives happy
    Poor culture - good work is often not appreciated or rewarded

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the customer (really)
    Improve the design & decision matking process process (customer-focused)
    Implement a customer based technology development program
    Focus on customer satisfaction, not just cost cutting for GM's benefit
    Eliminate PEP program or change it to include small GM cars, competitor cars and cars more than 6 months old
